Review summary

What a disappointment -- don't believe the hype.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
This was very efficient, gave me high hopes for the cruise

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
4 MDR concept was very good; food was good; pizza in buffet was too far away from other food. Zumba-style music in Martini Bar was a real turn-off. Even the Christmas music had a BOOM BOOM BOOM beat; no bar where you could just sit and have a conversation

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
I would give this a zero star rating if I could. They want you to be on your cell phone or tablet all the time instead of interacting with others. Trivia was a joke. Knitting? Taught by someone who doesn't know what he's doing?

Entertainment

1 out of 5
Eden was awful -- silly, pointless. Music playing throughout the ship was horrible.

Children's Programs

no kids

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
They tried so hard, but couldn't overcome the ship's deficiencies; long lines at Guest Relations really told you something

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Everything was gray, even the Christmas decorations; no sky lounge; no library, not even a shelf where we could leave books for others; no card room; uncomfortable chairs;

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Some things were very good -- USB ports, electrical outlet in bathroom, comfortable bed. But the closet was small; the balcony was tiny; the tv didn't swivel so you couldn't see it from the (hard as rocks) couch; no coffee table so room service for two was difficult -- no place to put a tray;

Ship tip

don't sail unless you like to be bombarded with a Zumba beat all day long

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
couldn't wait to get off
